POLICE have charged a man in Vanua Levu for allegedly defiling his stepdaughter.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed this yesterday.

Insp Sokomuri said the girl had an argument with her mother and fled to the make-shift farmhouse at a village in Cakaudrove.

He added that the victim's stepfather knew of her location and was taking food to her during her stay at the farm near the village.

"The suspect did not have the intention of kidnapping the victim at the farm as she had taken herself there," he said.

"Therefore we had dropped the charge of abduction and we have charged him with one count of defilement only.

"The suspect is expected to appear at the Savusavu Magistrates Court tomorrow."

He said the victim was staying with her relatives.
